    Some 40 universities in the United Kingdom have now reported cases of Coronavirus, forcing thousands of students to self-isolate as the new term begins. Many students are demanding to know why they were encouraged to leave home and pay for accommodation when much of the teaching is being done online. Aberystwyth University is the latest to suspend face-to-face teaching because of the pandemic. After a wave of complaints, the Scottish government has now changed its guidance to allow students to return home if they wish, although their entire household would then have to isolate for 14 days. Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Dan Johnson in Manchester.
